Overview of the School.
American Private School of Kalba (ASK) was established in August 2018, as a private American Curriculum School, where the curriculum is underpinned by the American Common Core Curriculum. Our school is accredited by the American International Accreditation Association (AiAA). The school is also overseen by Sharjah Private Education Authority(SPEA). As a school, we are very proud of what we do, and also proud of our students who are at the core of the work that we do.
ASK is a forward looking school, focused on ensuring a learning environment that has each student at its centre. UAE traditional values of self-discipline, respect, responsibility and sensitivity to the needs of others underpin our school ethos. Our students are encouraged to achieve to their fullest potential, with achievements outside the classroom valued as highly as those within the formal curriculum.
We would like to invite you to enroll your child with us and we will ensure that they are given every opportunity to gain both academic success and personal fulfillment and to hone their talents and social skills in a friendly, supportive environment.
ASK is situated in a secure environment in Kalba City in the Emirates of Sharjah.
